Your health is important. And although we know physical health is really never just about your physical body, sometimes that's exactly where we need to start so you can feel confident you are on the right track with healing persistent symptoms. If you're unsure if medical evaluation would be helpful for you, book an introductory session with me to learn more.
The biopsychosocial paradigm for health is well understood (and exceedingly well supported by loads of data!), but, disappointingly, is rarely addressed in the medical setting. Encounters with clinicians tend to reinforce a primarily biological approach to wellness. This is a huge disservice when you are experiencing chronic pain and other persistent symptoms, because we know, without a doubt, that the longer symptoms are present, the more and more these other variables contribute to their persistence.
Why Get Biomedical Input?
You live in a body, and it's important to know that it's healthy. That's where biomedical approaches excel. But, you also need to feel supported in knowing that physical symptoms can be related to more than just your anatomy. That's where I come in. My experience as a clinician allows me to integrate biomedical evaluation with the principles of mind body medicine, so I can speak confidently about both your physical body and your body mind connection. Because, simply put, to change persistent symptoms, you need both.
